View Full Version : Problem changing quality in very small wav files

06-08-2005, 10:57 PM
I'm trying to change the sound quality in some wav files to 8 bit, 800Hz, mono. Some of them I successfully converted (those 3 seconds and longer) but I have several that are only 2 seconds or shorter and when I change the quality they come out garbled. Is there a way to fix this?

If you change both the bits and the frequency at the same time it won't work on very short files, they will sound sped up.

Do this in 2 steps:
1) First change frequency down to 8000Hz, but keep bits as source.
2) Then, for the wav obtained in step 1), change bits down to 8, keeping frequency as source.

You can change the channels to mono in either of those 2 steps.
